Citrus Maca Chai Smoothie

Drink Herbs + Supplements Uncategorized

Anyone else excited that it’s currently citrus season? I know I am! I’ve recently been learning more about chakras and why it’s important to make sure they’re unblocked. The sacral chakra, in particular, is responsible for feminine energy and reproductive organs. So how do you know if your sacral chakra is blocked and how do you unblock it? You may have a lack of motivation, creativity, and reduced libido if your sacral chakra is blocked. To help open it, it’s important to bring in warmth, orange foods, and honor your reproductive organs. This citrus maca chai smoothie was created specifically for it!

Did you know that BPA and other plastic chemicals are endocrine disruptors and can have the power to cause reproductive problems? I love replacing typical plastic storage bags with reusable silicone ones from Stasher. Add the hormone-regulating power of maca and this just may be your new favorite smoothie for your monthly cycle.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. Gaia Herbs MacaBoost Vanilla Chai (or 1 tsp. of maca, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, cardamom, ginger)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen coconut meat
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 peeled orange
  • 1 Tbsp. toasted flax seed

 

 

Make

  1. Prep ingredients by dicing fresh bananas and coconut meat. Add them to a reusable Stasher bag and freezing overnight.
  2. In the morning add everything to a high-speed blender for about 30 seconds to a minute.
  3. Serve with extra cinnamon on top or an added kick.
  4. Enjoy!

A Zero Waste Trip to the Farmer’s Market
Hello, friends! Happy #PlasticFreeJuly! In honor of this, I thought I'd share with you a little bit about my trips to farmer's markets this summer. Farmer's markets can be one of the easiest ways to shop no waste, here's why: Fresh produce from local farmers is unlikely to be stored in plastic bags/containers It's convenient to bring your own bags when you're walking from home or nearby (and you feel less awkward because everyone seems to be doing it!) The produce is SO fresh! Why wouldn't you rather shop there than at the grocery store? On top of this, shopping #plasticfree makes it easier for you to prep nourishing food fo ...

Rejuvenating Green Smoothie
Cold and flu season is in full force this Winter, so what better way to include tons of nutrients while hydrating your body? A green smoothie of course! This one not only includes fruit but some hidden veggies too. Most green smoothies never fill me up. So because this is winter, and we should be nourishing our bodies, I added some sun butter. If you're unfamiliar with sun butter, it's similar to nut butter but it's nut-free! Sunflower seeds are packed with antioxidants, magnesium, and may promote healthy cholesterol levels. If you're like me and despise waking up early to make breakfast, you're in luck. You can prep all of the fruit a ...

A Day of Supplements
  Hi, friends! So, I receive a lot of questions about the exact supplements I take every day for Gastroparesis and gut health. I figured I would just write a whole post on it because it's a bit detailed. Before reading this, please note that everyone is totally different and I do not intend to treat or cure. This is simply what helps me the most, and if there's even the smallest chance it will help someone else out there suffering I'd love to share. There are a lot of awesome brands, but Nature's Sunshine is always my go-to. I've tried so many digestive enzymes, even more powerful than these, and they just don't flow with my body the ...
